    Importing a specific Excel worksheet into Access

    Hi,


    I am using this subroutine.

    Sub ImportExcelSpreadsheet()
    Dim Sheetname As String


    Sheetname = "'Contacts1'"
    DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel12, "NewImport", "T:/Copy of Yuba County - Master9.xlsm", True, Sheetname


    End Sub

    It can't find a specific worksheet "Contacts1". If I eliminate SheetName from the end of the the DoCmd, it works but it only imports the first worksheet in the workbook.

    I have tried naming a range and tacking that on to the DoCmd and it does work. But what can I do to make it use the worksheet name.

    Thanks

    Don't use apostrophes but do use $ sign.

    Sheetname = "Contacts1$"

    or

    DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acImport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel12, "NewImport", "T:/Copy of Yuba County - Master9.xlsm", True, Sheetname & "$"
